Average Size at MaturityModerate growing; reaches 1 ft. tall, spreading 6 to 8 ft. wide.

Design IdeasIn very cold regions, this blue Juniper adapts well to snow and frost. Lovely when planted around boulders or in rock gardens, where its twisted branches can be trained to unique forms. A reliable plant for high desert with its rapidly fluctuating day and night temperatures. Thrives in rocky, thin mountain soils or the sandy gravel of inland deserts. Use on slopes for coverage or erosion control. Plant along retaining walls and curbs, where the creeping foliage will cover year-round. Good along the hot, glaring edges of paved streets and driveways.
